These two figures make me smile every time I pass them. They make me think of a little child, "helping" Mum but ending up making more mess than there was in the first place! Nice to view them from a different angle than I would normally do.
Surprised the village idiots have not wrecked them before now. Like Irene said they bring back memories.
I suppose these 'effigies' are a reminder of the human street sweepers we used to have, but will never see again!
Veronica, we have a lovely man here where I live, who with his broom & other equipment that he pushes along in his trolley, keeps our seafront clear of litter all summer long. He does a brilliant job. That said visitors do their bit too & dont leave litter around but dispose of it in the many bins provided.
You are very lucky Helen... The one we had in Market St spent half his time leaning on his brush chatting! After he retired he still stands in the same spots to this day having a chat with anybody who'll stop and listen.
Yes In also surprised they havent been vandalised
Where I live the townspeople can be issued with a metal 'litter-picker' and a green recycling bag if requested at the Library. I haven't used it yet, but just pick litter up normally. It's shocking just how much litter you can pick up i.e bottles and cans and fast food containers over a few days! You see many of these green bags near public waste bins.
